The Man Who Ran Washington

In this special episode we discuss “The Man Who Ran Washington: The Life and Times of James A. Baker III,” the landmark biography of one of the real titans of the Washington scene over the past half century, with its authors, New Yorker staff writer Susan Glasser and NY Times Chief White House Correspondent Peter Baker.  The book is not only a compelling life story, it is also a lens via which to see the shift from the old Washington of “wise men” and deal-makers who knew how to compromise and valued competence to the manic, dysfunctional world of Donald Trump and scorched earth Republicans like Mitch McConnell.  Join us for a deep dive into an important, large and complex life and how it impacts us all to this very day.
